Aesthetics of Migration 02.02.2015
In Grenada, stencilled street art by Yescka shows two figures running toward each other, one white and holding a surfboard and the other black and holding a life preserver, presumably to identify the African and the European runner. The art again evokes the notion of ‘collision of worlds’ between migrant and tourist in the same contact zone, but where one experiences the same site as holiday space and the other experiences it as prison or cemetery.

Yescka on Vice Magazin 08.11.2014
Barbara Calderón-Douglass published an article on vice.com featuring one of Yesckas latest pieces from Mexico City Protests.
Yescka is a Oaxacan street artist and founder of the political art collective ASARO (Assembly of Revolutionary Artists of Oaxaca). He created wheatpaste posters of five young men in postures of surrender as red spray paint drips off their backs. Three figures with their pants at their ankles wear soccer jerseys that read “Justice,” “Ayotzinapa,” and “October 2″—the day of the Tlaltelolco Massacre.

La ultima cena 15.03.2013
The “apostles” represent a part of mexico’s political, economical and religious elite. The most powerful among them is a well-known drug boss in Jesus place. The others are gathered around him, begging for his recognition. They are all sitting at one table, distributing the power among each other. Their thirst for power makes them devour the values that represents the head of Benito Juárez in the middle of the table, like freedom and justice and they abuse the responsibility they received from the people.
Los “apóstolos” en el imagen representan una parte de la élite mexicana. Como el más poderoso entre ellos, se presenta un narco popular tomando el lugar de Jesús. Los demás se juntan alrededor de él y piden su favor. Todos están sentados en una mesa y reparten el poder entre ellos. Su avidez de poder les hace comer los valores representados por la cabeza de Benito Juárez, como libertad y justicia y se abusan de la responsabilidad de la les ha encargado el pueblo.
